A Message from the ANMS President Gianrico Farrugia, MD
Welcome, we all belong to the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility society because we care deeply about our field and have a passion for advancing the field to improve the lives of individuals with disorders affecting gastrointestinal neuromuscular function and the brain-gut axis both in the United States and around the world. This is the right time to do so. We have strong support from the NIH as highlighted by the recent Functional Bowel Disease Workshop held on the NIH campus. We have strong collaborative ties with pharmaceutical companies and patient advocacy groups. We have come together with one voice with our colleagues and sister societies. We are seeing an emergence of new basic and clinical technologies that have the potential to not only advance our individual fields of expertise but also bring about convergence of thought.
The Mission and Goals of the ANMS
The American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society is an organization that was established in 1980 dedicated to the study of neurogastroenterology and gastrointestinal motility and functional GI disorders.
Mission of the ANMS
To be the multidisciplinary society leading the field of neurogastroenterology by fostering excellence in research, education, training, and patient care.
Neurogastroenterology encompasses the study of brain, gut, and their interactions with relevance to the understanding and management of GI motility and functional GI disorders.

The American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society (ANMS) Research Committee is launching a Mentoring Program in Neurogastroenterology and Motility to help young clinicians and scientists (MDs, PhDs, or DVMs) as they start their research career in the areas of neurogastroenterology and gastrointestinal motility. The areas of interest can be varied and the research may take the form of clinical investigation, basic science research, or translational science research. The objective of the program is to provide guidance to individuals at an early stage of their career who may enter the field of neurogastroenterology and gastrointestinal motility.
